Lyn Ward, Broker Associate
Lyn had 30+years experience in buying & selling homes in CA and CO. "Flipping houses" gave her a first-hand knowledge of the real estate market. Since her husband's death in July, 2008, Lyn found these words to be true - "One of the ways our faith expresses itself is by an ability to be still, to be present; not to panic or lose perspective. God still does His best work in the most difficult of circumstances." Lyn's enthusiasm and Godly example will be greatly missed in our office since her recent death in August of 2018.

Brenda Tenney, Broker Associate
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.That said, in my experience as a La Junta real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the La Junta areas, please contact me.
